What is a Credit Union?
Chartered in 1933, Northwest Missouri Regional Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative, owned, controlled, and operated for the benefit of its members. Since there are no outside stockholders to satisfy, the credit union can return a greater percentage of its income to you, the member-owner, in the form of higher rates on deposits and lower rates on loans.
Credit union members join together to build long-term financial stability and provide high quality, low-cost financial services.
Who Can Join?
Northwest Missouri Regional Credit Union is proud to serve the current students, alumni, employees, emeritus faculty, and retired teachers of the private and state schools in the Northwest Missouri State University district as described in Missouri statutes; any person who resides or works in Nodaway, Andrew, Atchison, Gentry, Holt, and Worth Counties; and immediate family members of the above listed groups.
